Holy Cross Preparatory School is an outstanding independent school for girls aged from 3 to 11 years. Located conveniently just off Kingston Hill, we are a Catholic school with a caring and inclusive ethos. We have a beautiful eight-acre site and offer first rate facilities including a performing arts and sports hall, tennis and netball courts, a sports pavilion, and all-weather pitches.

Our dedicated and committed team work together to pursue excellence on every level. Our well behaved and curious girls not only achieve academic excellence; many excel in sport, music and art while growing as happy, well-rounded, confident, and curious young people. Our employees are extremely hardworking, highly motivated, and fully committed to life in a busy and thriving prep school.

We are looking to appoint a friendly and welcoming person to provide a professional and effective admin support service to the school. Ideally you will have first-hand experience of working in a school office or other busy office environment, will be highly organised and possess excellent communication and IT skills.

Accuracy and confidentiality are also imperative as the job holder will maintain pupil medical and dietary records. This is a very busy and varied role so a flexible, can-do attitude is a must.

We value our employees and offer competitive salaries, membership of a pension scheme, life insurance and other wellbeing benefits such as 24/7 GP access. We have car-parking on site and provide a free lunch during term time.
